8 lb is WAY heavy for 1/8 oz. anything. I would typically use 2 lb. Even 4 lb will limit your casting distance.Don Broeren said:I think you've already got the problem figured out. IMO 8 lb line is a little on the heavy side for 1/8th oz jigs. In addition to that I have found P-Line to have quite a bit of memory which only makes the problem worse. Try switching to a 4 or 6 lb line with less memory, I'd recommend the Sufix Siege. Just remember to lighten up your drag a bit.
Of course, if you catch a snag, it's gone.... just the cost of doing business....
